THOUGH she was introduced to the English language in Primary Four, Devayan Nitin excelled in last year’s O’level examinations.
There were tears of joy, as Devayan, 16, received the news that she scored aggregate 10 and emerging ninth-best in Jinja district.
“I couldn’t hold it. I started crying because I was very excited. Despite what you are saying, I could not expect to  challenge students in giant schools like Busoga College Mwiri and Kiira College Butiki. This is a surprise to me,” Devayan said.
From an Indian school using the Marathi language in P.3, Devayan joined Madhvani Primary School in P.4, where she was introduced to the English alphabet.
“I got a very good teacher, who took me the A B C... She used to teach me with the aid of pictures like I was in kindergarten. Surprisingly, I got a Distinction 1 in English at PLE and aggregate 6. I was the best girl at my school,” she said.
Born to Nitin Phadke, a farm satellite superintendent at Kakira sugar works, Devayan’s PLE performance earned her a bursary from the Madhvani Group.
